Prize Money Guarantee For Tour Players Extended For Two More Seasons

Players on the World Snooker Tour will be guaranteed to earn a minimum of £20,000 during both the 2023/24 and 2024/25 seasons, under a system introduced for the first time last year to provide financial security.

Under the initiative, which is funded by WST and the WPBSA Players Board, players will be offered payments of up to £10,000 in July, and a further £10,000 in January.

These payments are set against prize money, so players otherwise earning £20,000 or more over the season will have the up-front payments deducted from their prize money or appearance fee earnings. The system will particularly benefit those who would otherwise earn less than £20,000 in prize money.
